A Beginners Tip to Scrapbooking

By using digital designs to enhance your scrapbook you can also use free scrapbooking papers which you can also print later to create your additional and traditional project. If you want to enhance your traditional scrapbook then here’s a list of embellishments that you can find around the house, at a dollar store, or at a craft store.





Beads – Minuscule beads work well for special stress, such as the centre of a flower.  Although beads can be used in a scrapbook, they are better matched for greeting cards, calendars, etc. Glitter Glue

Glitter Glue: A prodigious embellishment for whatever the theme!

Brads – Brads are also stated to as mini-fasteners.  As a superior effect, choose a colour brad to attach a die-cut to a page.  Using a needle, poke a small hole through the die-cut and the page.  Poke the legs through both items and spread out the legs.  Be sure to cover up the legs on the flip side of the page with card stock.  Evade covering the legs with a photo or sticker because the framework of the legs will press through.

Buttons – Flat buttons of different colours and shape look fabulously cute on a page.  Save the bulky buttons for greeting cards.

Charms – Flat metal charms add a special dash to any scrapbook page!



Confetti – Whether its store bought metallic confetti or confetti that you make out of paper, use confetti to highlight the focal point of a page.

Die-cuts – Die-cuts can save you lots of work!  Die-cuts are made out of different types of paper and come in all sorts of subjects.

Eyelets – Eyelets are coloured metal shapes with a hole in the centre.  Classically we think of eyelets being round, but they actually come in fun shapes such as hearts, flowers and diamonds.

Foam shapes – Foam shapes aren’t just for kids!  Because of their chunkiness, foam shapes add dimension to a page.  Whether its letters, fish, numbers or smiley faces, you’ll see a varied assortment of shapes.

Glitter glue – Super easy to use, glitter glue adds texture to a page.  Create free-form swirls or use it to form a frame around a sticker or die-cut.

Journal tags – For a special touch, write on pre-made journal tags and adhere them to your page.

Metal photo corners – You can purchase photo corners that come in multiple colours or make your own out of card stock.  Photo corners allow you to remove a photo later if need be.

Pockets – Although pockets regularly are used to hold photos, you can also use them to show ticket stubs, a recipe, or some other paper item.

Pressed flowers – Pressed flowers add attractiveness to a scrapbook page.  Gather a few together or shake throughout the page.



Punches – Punches come in changed sizes and shapes.  Put your scraps to use and punch a bunch of leaves, snowmen or dinosaurs to use in your scrapbook.

Ribbon or Twine – Used as a margin, a tiny bow or as a string to a balloon, you’ll discover a lot of uses for ribbon and twine!

Sequins – When you’re looking for just a little something to enrich a flat embellishment, add a sequin.

Stickers – Stickers are super easy to use.  You merely peel and press!  You should be able to find stickers for most any theme.  Be sure to check your dollar store to save on cost.

Word bands – Word bands are comparable to stickers.  Some comprise of just one word, while others are phrases.  Quite often word bands are shady letters printed on a see-through background.
